Teenage Engineering, a company that oozes innovation has teamed up with Swedish fashion brand, Cheap Monday to launch the Pocket Operator series. These remarkable small and smooth synthesizers are designed to be used by everyone, making music creation as fun and free-form as possible all whilst delivering premium sound, features and effects.

The Teenage Engineering PO-16 features a variety of sounds from many synth eras including FM, subtractive synthesis, wavetable and physical modeled string. A 16th sound acts as a micro-drum machine letting you add a touch of rhythmic flair to your creation.

The ability to use either the pre-programmed 16 synth lines or create your own sequence from scratch gives you just as much freedom to create harmonic content as it does the timbre of sound. For more meat on the bone, the 16 powerful built in effects can be used to add distortion, delays, filters, stutter, shuffle and more, the sound creation possibilites and practically endless.

Hands on hardware

The Teenage Engineering PO-16 leaves nothing to the imagination with all circuitry, components and artwork exposed. The built in LCD screen features clear visual guides on pattern style, tempo, mode and sync info as well as some quirky animations.

Underneath the PO-16 lives caddy for 2 x AAA batteries that will power the unit for a staggering amount of time! (2 years on standby) These sit just under the built in stand, ideal for tabletop use.

Follow my lead

As with the other Pocket Operators, the PO-16 has a built in Jam Sync feature complete with audio through thanks to the built in 3.5mm jack in/out connections. Depending on how you want to connect your units, you can choose from one of 5 sync modes that can utilise stereo audio or divide the left and right signals to chain mono audio on one channel and a pulse on the other.

You can even use an iPhone, Korg Volca or computer as a sync master or slave making the PO-16 feel at home in your existing set up! Used on it's own or as part of a rig, the Teenage Engineering PO-16 gives anyone the total freedom to make some truly unique sound.
